a lot of thank you for joining me karen tyrol china live here in moscow this is our team and it's two o'clock here well before any authorities have banned all protests gatherings amid escalating clashes in the gulf kingdom it's the most sweeping attempt so far to kwacha entire regime protests that have been going on in the country for nearly two years they were calm after the country's police reportedly attacked anti-monarchy protesters with tear gas and rubber bullets in the capital manama on monday clashes in bahrain occur almost daily without around eighty people being killed since the unrest began become trees under fire from human rights groups for its brutal crackdowns on prova form campaigners who are calling for more rights jobs and that's the case and let's get more on this now from political analyst. thanks so much for joining r.t. today now tell us this is not the first crackdown on the protest movement in by her reign and authorities banned demos in the country before but what is. special about
6:02 am
this one. well you know it's the result dual martial law tactics that have been practiced before it's an attempt to completely squelch or squash people's uprising in fact bahrain get in the car the unfinished segment of the arab spring which is now what we know now to even throw or so. you know there's been a concert of conservative powers in the region as well as the. states and the western patrons who have tried to completely demolish the last of the people and what you see in the form of these crackdowns by the state are just manifestations of this larger context of loosely trim which is trying to stem the flow of the arab spring how tough do you think it will be for the opposition now to voice their views considering these new state of emergency star alls. well you know they have some safety laws in the form of a so-called elected parliament which is supposed to be the legitimate avenue where
6:03 am
people can express their grievances but the fact is that these party which have mostly been rigged and set up to endorse and she were caught monarchical rule is the same in kuwait is the same in bahrain is the same in most of these countries even jordan so these parliaments are not helping and i think these restrictions are meant to will also send a message to the shia minorities in saudi arabia who in turn revolt after the shia in bahrain rose up against the khalifa family so what you have is a regional set up which is not allowing free expression are and then why is for example syria such a hot spot and behind much this is the origin of the sin of the whole arab spring narrative and we're not being able to overcome these double standards just because bahrain who's the fifth fleet of the u.s. navy does not entitle it to be so brutal and repressive and get to see the crimes against humanity which are happening how united as the bahraini protests move and i
6:04 am
mean after all the authorities have not been able to crush it for twenty months now . well actually in fact i would say compared to the engineered like you had in libya and what you have in city of jeddah orchestra from i'm sorry i think the bahraini movement is much more like the egyptian people smoove mind it's actually an indigenous movement are there is no proof of iran's involvement or stalking by the bahraini struggle as are so these in the bahraini monarchy have been amazing i mean this is really an indigenous movement it's based upon a form of minority rule you know dissimilar to you know what happened in iraq over and saddam hussein was in power so we need to you know to give all the legitimacy of the legitimacy why is somebody artificially over tool. quite others have been propped up laboring them in this sense to move with the far left who rule whether your probation or not really seems to matter whether you lose
6:05 am
all freedom or not now a lot of prominent behind the activist second jail including not the overtop was now serving three years for tweeting and participating in illegal gatherings do you see their fate changing now as well. you know the region has to evolve i mean as you know the arab spring is no more than a year old and there are really many diversions additional in the focus on behavior and intense international as well as we can focus on very reasons not to happen there's a conspiracy of silence had on her and barring a few critical groups not much is a lot to be covered and moving decisions of the group so if you will struggle strife and you know even to me the city of all these monarchies are tied to each other. saudi arabia continue to adore and continue to be in the standard of the of the monarchical regimes then the also probably the one in bahrain using the gulf
6:06 am
cooperation council and other regional mechanisms so really it's a question of more complete freedom in the region whether you want to deny its crew . but i really didn't i would say that is the story because the more this one the most the purest of all in all these closer to the this is something you know for the more and also. because. this is really the voice of the people who are you look at it it comes over i would there this from the only point to that is all they have no idea is the area of concern to the forces which are trying to suppress them now what about the u.s. with washington backing behind the rulers how much influence does america actually have there. also only do you see i would say that after saudi arabia if there is a regime that did fear we collapse it's still going in very because of its strategic location and because of the presence of the u.s. military there and you know we saw the ability to project power in the region but
